a special evening for all. Food is fantastic, as is the service. Not to mention the view. The only issue is the price. In my mind, worth i!
Wonderful as always!
Great food, great service, great views. Four star dining with courteous staff !
Great food. Attentive service. A wonderful evening.
We eat out often from elegant restaurants to beef and beer joints and everything in between. This night we were looking forward to a unique fine dining experience but were ultimately a little let down. Although the food was nice, and the service fine, the atmosphere was not. Though many patrons were well dressed and behaved, a younger couple in their mid-twenties were seated close to us and they were dressed like they were about to bar hop the Jersey Shore after attending a grunge concert- T-shirt, ragged cargo pants loosely rolled up at the ankle, and untied and beat-up leather boots.
For the location and the price we expected a dress appropriate respectful atmosphere. Online info mentions a dress code but we later found out from the manager (who was very nice) that the code is "requested but not required."
Folks, we are not snobs but we do appreciate respectful behavior to include appropriate attire when called for. Unfortunately, though it is their absolute right to do so, Castle Hill has chosen to minimize standards to an unacceptable level.
We will not return.
Thank you for joining us and for your feedback. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and service. While we do list a dress-code as requiring collared shirts in The Dining Room, it does not surprise me that we allowed a guest to continue enjoying their meal without such adornments. The dress code is informative, not punitive. It's designed to inform what type of meal to forward to, more so than to exclude guests who have looked forward to celebrating but missed the fine print.
The atmosphere was great the service was excellent Rey friendly and helpful enjoyed one of our experience we will never forget
Checking in with our hostess was a nightmare! For such a beautiful experience Castle Hill offered with service from our head waiter and such a fantastic culinary experience, she does not belong working there. She was curt and fresh, talking over me when I tried to answer her. My husband had the same trouble with her---definitely not a position for such a limited and nasty person to hold.
Really happy we made it here on our trip. Service was outstanding
If you want top of the line, inventive gourmet cuisine that blends New American, French, and classic New England fare in endlessly inventive variations, Castle Hill can’t be topped. Ask for Dan Moriarty or another of the well-versed friendly waitstaff. Unparalleled personal service and a fantastic intimate setting. Everything Newport is known for, and more.
The Food was the best menu and quality in several years. Carl our server was fantastic! Excellent service and care to cater to the customer.
Fabulous meal, as always. They don't have a huge menu, but everything is done with unique preparation. And the additional things, like the 3 different bread services, add to the overall experience. I think this is the best restaurant in Rhode Island, which has many wonderful restaurants.
Everything was great!
We had a wonderful time. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive.
Beautiful place and one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Tremendous service too
Fantastic dinner. Food was amazing. Service was impeccable. Highly suggest going to Castle Hill for dinner.
Outstanding service and ambience. Food left you wondering about seasoning presentation and menu selection. There was only a tasting menu with very little appetizing choices. Makes you wonder if there is shortage of good staff in the kitchen.
We go here for birthdays and our anniversary each year. Food and service was wonderful as always. However, the room we were seated in was next door to a private party. The young children attending were loud and very active (as children will be). This took away from the sophisticated atmosphere that were have been accustomed to while dining.
Very loud because of an obnoxious person at another table in the room. Food was very good and service was excellent. The value was diminished by the high cost of the fixed cost meals. If cost isn’t a concern, a good choice.
Outstanding Anniversary Dinner, we were offered a 3 Course Price Fixed Menu, each course was both a visual as well as culinary treat! We dined in a rotunda area of the Inn where they had installed plexiglass partitions between the tables so all diners would feel safe, needless to say the views are outstanding!
Superb in every way.
Excellent service. Excellent food. The flavors, presentation, and ambiance was top notch. Will definitely come again!!
Unreal view, amazing staff, the best food!
Excellent service from start to finish
Good was fabulous
The pre-fix menu is extremely overpriced! The food was below average, honestly. Cauliflower steak was just bland roasted cauliflower. I would not recommend this restaurant for a special evening.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere
Amazing! Good and service was incredible. Our waiter Dan was first class.
We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and as a surprise our friends had called the day before ,spoke to a manager who took their credit card because they wanted to pay for our evening. That never happened. We paid for our meals without even knowing our friends had attempted to surprise us.
We had an awful table in the very small room. We had asked for a table near the window in that room but they wouldn’t let us sit there because they said there was another reservation coming in and then we wouldn’t be 6 feet apart from the other reservation however that reservation never showed up. The food was fair not like it used to be as was the same for the service. Castle Hill used to be a phenomenal place not sure what happened but it has really gone downhill
Thank you so much for choosing to celebrate with us, and for the feedback as well. I am so sorry to hear about how this anniversary turned out, which I'm sure you were looking forward to. While the table selection was an unfortunate circumstance - I know we could have done better with the food and billing arrangement. Would you mind getting in touch so that we can make this right?
Very nice dining experience. Great service, very nice menu selection. And nice evening for our special occasion.
My only issue was that I really wanted a water view and although I knew that it wasn’t guaranteed I was a bit disappointed for my birthday
The presentation and hospitality were outstanding. Nick was a wonderful host and even spent time with us after our meal to share some of the rich history of the property. A lovely setting with superb food and spectacular service!
Our much anticipated dinner was on the brink of becoming a disaster when the dinner entree we saw on the sample menu was not being offered. Our waiter,Carl must have felt our pain when we asked why it was taken off the menu,he took the cocktail order and came back with the unexpected news that after talking with the chef he could prepare the poached lobster dish. Not only was the entire meal unbelievable but that little extra concern shown by Carl made this a night to remember.We will recommend this restaurant not only for the quality and presentation of the dinner but for the genuine feeling we received from Carl.
Great food and amazing service. Thanks for the experience!!
I don’t have enough gratuitous words to describe how amazing the staff is at Castle Hill. Nick was professional with just the right amount of whit and charm to fancy 4 girls from NY celebrating my girlfriend’s moms birthday and her dedication this past year to her job as a lifetime healthcare worker.
I can not Thank You enough for one of the best dining experiences I personally have ever had and the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER (her words).
Took my wife and 2 sons for my wife’s birthday. We were overwhelmed as we walked in. Nick then navigated our experience. Food was outstanding. Room was breathtaking. Ambiance was incredible. What stole the show honestly, was the staff and service. It’s as if they sensed our slight anxiety and made us feel at home without compromising the integrity of The Dining Room at Castle Hill. Can’t wait for our next milestone to dine with you again.
All around good time. Food was different and all fantastic. Went for restaurant week and had a wine that u never had before but will get again for sure.
Amazing! Food and service was top notch, we’ll be going back.
